Indicator chaining in Python

Hi, the following doesn't seem to be working in Python. Looking at the docs, I've tried this in C# and it seems to compile and run but in python, it fails as it cannot find the self.macd.SMA method.

self.macd = self.MACD(self._symbol, 52, 24, 18, MovingAverageType.Exponential, Resolution.Minute, Field.Close)
self.macd_ema = self.macd.SMA(30)
Update Backtest








Thank you for the report! I have just added the docs for indicator extensions for python.
In python, we need to use the following:

self.macd = self.MACD(self._symbol, 52, 24, 18, MovingAverageType.Exponential, Resolution.Minute, Field.Close)
self.macd_ema = IndicatorExtensions.SMA(self.macd, 30)
